I downloaded code for the COHCAP Bioconductor SVN repository (, made some changes, and then tried to commit those changes.  However, I got an error message that the SVN repository is locked, so the changes could not be uploaded because of a switch to git.

I have a GitHub account, and I uploaded the COHCAP code (with the latest round of changes) to GitHub:

However, I am not sure how to make this the new Bioconductor repository.  I am trying to follow the instructions available here:

However, if I run the command git remote add upstream, then I get an error message: fatal: Not a git repository.

Can you please help me update the COHCAP Bioconductor repository and understand how this is now managed through GitHub?

Did you run the git remote add command in the package root dir? I see a similar error message when I try to run a git command but I've forgotten to cd into the package directory.

Thanks for the suggestion - I did need to cd into the COHCAP directory.

I also needed to create a ssh key and submit it to Bioconductor using this form.
